    Just bought it and am loving it. 2001 1.8T with 100k miles.

    Prosport Coilovers with BBS CH reps. Need to raise it slightly and get wider tyres on it....

    They are reps. Got some stretch on them too. Need to get some wider tyres. Am running 215 and want to up it to 225 but may need to raise it so Im not fouling the arches.

    Right gonna annoy you again since no one replied to my thread. Directly under the plug u checked for me is another tucked under inlet manifold. Can u tell what colour this one is? I'm trying to work out if something is swapped round or missing!! Any help is much appreciated.
